This property provides comfortable, well-furnished accommodation for five people over two bedrooms – one first floor double, and one ground floor twin with additional fold out bed - as well as a small kitchen and a sitting-room with dining area.

Converted from a former barn this quaint, period cottage is situated on the owner's working farm in the peaceful hamlet of Penselwood. Just two miles from Bourton and five miles from Gillingham, amid the glorious countryside on the borders of Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire, this pretty cottage makes an excellent base from which to explore the area. Guests also have access to shared use of the owner's lawned garden – ideal for picnics, ball games and barbecues. The property is well served by the local town of Bourton whilst slightly further afield are a wide range of activities.


A beautiful cottage in a lovely location. It was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. It is close to Wincanton which has large supermarkets. There are lovely walks in the local area and it is close to lots of great attractions. We were really sad to leave.
Mrs Tomlin

Should be a higher star grade, it was amazing. It is such a beautiful place to be, it's a life I dream of.
Miss Hayes

Very peaceful location. Cute and cosy little cottage with adequate supplies (it is made clear you need to bring your own towels). Small and uncomfortable sofa and chairs with wooden railings hard to relax on. Wifi advertised but signal literally non-existent and no mobile phone signal either so awkward if you do need to keep in touch. Ideal for a couple of walkers looking to get away from it all. Not so good for dog owners due to 'garden' being overgrown field across muddy lane so a mission to let dog out every time.

The Old Bull Stall is a lovely place for a relaxing holiday, but is also a good base for visiting places in Somerset and surrounding counties. It is ideally located for walking and the cottage is actually part of the farm. The owners are very friendly and helpful, but not intrusive, and the farm eggs are delicious!
Mrs Smith

The cottage was in a lovely peaceful setting. The owners were very accommodating and our two children loved seeing the animals on the farm especially bottle feeding the calf. It was a fantastic location for sightseeing but there was also the added bonus of having so many places to walk surrounding the farm.
